Public transportation vital to the area

Editor:
In the Jan. 31 edition of the Seminole Beacon there were two articles that reminded me of how important public transportation is in bringing Florida’s number one industry to the area. One article discussed the financial difficulty of PSTA and the other was a letter to the editor rejecting light rail. If the main access to the area is Tampa airport then it is almost impossible to reach the beaches of Pinellas County other than by rental car.

How much more business will come to Pinellas for recreation and culture/sports if better public transport were available is hard to predict, but I am sure its absence detours vacationers to other areas. I am an optimist. Surely those businesses that depend on tourism will recognize the need to improve public transportation and support this need with calls on their representatives and activism for public funding.
